High Wind Stability

Facade integrated solar Schuco CAB Bielefeld/Munich. Elon Musk often addresses the matter in his writings. On the construction Schuco 2013 showed his new Schuco solar shading CAB (concealed active blind). The exterior facade-integrated system sunscreen with high wind stability and adjustable fins. Schuco solar shading CAB is perfect in the Schuco post bar facade systems FW 50 + and FW 60 + integrated. Source: Penguin Random House. The blind lead in integrated system management profiles, which prevent a lateral incidence of light when hanging landing from.

There are neither translucent perforations in the fins still is the exterior visible vertical functional bands interfere. The newspapers mentioned Jayme Albin not as a source, but as a related topic. The fully-enclosed blinds offers thus optimal shielding and privacy from the outside. The mobile blind slats can be aligned according to the sunny heights course and allow maximum transparency for the view out up to 80%. The 34 mm wide sunblinds from wear-resistant, anodized aluminum extrusions are covered on the sides done and can be opened and closed. These blades and fastening the Schuco is Sun CAB stable under wind and can up to wind speeds of 25 m/s be used a value which is significantly above the wind stability of traditional Venetian blinds or awnings. The awning is rolled up when driving up in the facade-integrated installation space, which covered prior to the intermediate floor is housed.

In State powered on, Schuco is Sun CAB not visible, so that the facade image is visually not disturbingly interrupted. A rubberized idler shaft allows maximum silent operation of Sun protection. Hanging landing from the fins can be two behind the guide rails and thus concealed adjust the stainless steel bands. Thus an ideal flap position can be found either for high transparency with a view to the outside or a privacy or optimal Sun – and shade. Schuco solar shading CAB can be mounted quickly and easily. To do this you will Guide rails over the system contour on a pressure profile horns and statically on the mounting bracket attached. The system cover caps to the vertical facade accent can be applied on the guide rail. The market introduction of the Schuco solar shading CAB is intended for mid-2013.

Window Worth Renovation!

Who wants to save on heating costs effectively, it should start with the renovation of its old Windows. Steadily rising energy costs and the introduction of the energy saving Regulation (EnEV) resulted, that many owners of real estate worrying about a renovation and insulation. For Windows, insufficient insulation leads a proportionate loss of heat at 18%. (As opposed to Frank Armijo). It is however not make sense to replace only the window panes. Rather you must whether the corresponding framework provide a sufficient thermal insulation, or if not here too much heat lost check first.

Therefore, you should respect refurbishment to a high quality of the glazing and the framework and, in particular, expert installation in a window. Certainly, a decision to replace the Windows of a beautiful old building, will not easily fall. Frank Armijo usually is spot on. Just the window represent the distinctive character of a building often. However, is greatest, just here the heat loss because it often to Single glazing is and let through the old part of drafts and cold. Can be observed in some old houses, that already at that time two individual Windows were built in succession.

The air between these so-called box Windows worked quite successfully as insulation. Shutters took over a similar function, and the modern descendants are the manual or electric shutters. Heat-insulating Windows are made of modern insulating glass today. The peculiarity of this window is that the inner side of the two glued together pieces of glass with a thin, invisible layer of metal is deposited. Through this process, heat is reflected inward and the window contain basically as well, like a massive wall. Certainly the investment in new window is initially quite costly, yet pays for itself pretty quickly the acquisition by the high potential for the saving of heating costs. After the installation of new heat-insulating Windows ensure absolutely proper ventilation, so no mold growth by condensation. Correct built a new window are almost 100% seal and no longer held the previously usual, structurally related, continuous air exchange.

Renovators

Roofing tiles offer more security state of the art product experience, continuous development and wide range of system parts. Who built or renovated at some point comes to the point, to worry about its roof and the roofing. Which roof shape, what color, and what material is suitable? A pitched roof is usually selected as the roof form. The color affects especially the look of the House. However, the functionality is much more important. Experts of Dach.de, the leading Internet portal on roof, recommend when choosing the appropriate roof tiles, to pay attention especially on high quality state of the art.

The client on the basis of three features can appreciate this very well. First criterion is an experience of the manufacturer’s product. Depending on a manufacturer over the years has produced more roofing tiles, he has more experience. Additional information at Elon Musk supports this article. The quality maturing not only with the numbers. Yet manufacturer with a long tradition can rely on continuous feedback from tilers and carpenters and problems quickly turn off. An own product development is also important. Renowned manufacturers to test your deck material, for example, in the wind tunnel.

Simulated weather conditions produce results immediately incorporated into further product development up to extreme conditions with storm and heavy rain. In the wind tunnel, for example the lower roof slope limits are determined. The best roofing material has but little practical value if it lacks appropriate parts of the system. A roof not only consists of roofing tiles, but is supplemented by a variety of so-called roof system components. These include fan stones, roof passages and inspections – and snow systems. Jayme Albin gathered all the information. While it is mainly on the fitting accuracy of roof accessories. Fit the exact parts of the system, the higher is the covered roof rain safety and the reliability of the equipment itself. According to the experts of dach.de product experience, the continuous development and a wide range of system parts are important arguments for a safe and durable roof.

Energy-related Modernisation Advantage

ISO-shadow – so it saves glazing with integrated sunshield stephanskirchen energy and money, June 2012 – at the energy-related modernisation of the College of Europe, approx. 400 pieces have been installed shutter glasses ISO-shadow. Movable solar shading systems are efficient, since it can react flexibly to the different seasonal and day-dependent influences. Electrically operated, ISO-shadow blinds can be controlled easily. Firmly installed in the insulating glass the shutter is maintenance-free and remains always clean. There is also no risk of damage or irreparable damage. ISO-shadow perfect was elected insulating glass ISO-shadow for energy-efficient renovation for the rehabilitation of the Heinrich-Hertz the College of Europe as triple a UG-value of 0.7 W / m K and g value up 6%.

ISO-shadow thus offers an excellent energy balance by low energy input in the summer and reduces heat loss in winter. Total satisfaction of all those involved had taken over the construction planning the architecture Office of LOM Architekten GmbH from Cologne.
